baby, i would smash your pretty face
just to make you feel wanted
take you by the long white throat to show
how much i care

guitar on my bed
where your body's supposed to be
if i could turn you inside-out,
i'd swallow you down

down, down, down, down -
down, down, down, down -

baby, i would call your name
and i'd cut my skin to let you under
& if you promise not to leave,
i might let you outside

she is all around me now
if i could turn her inside-out,
i'd swallow her down

down, down, down, down -
throw me a line, you know i'm bound to drown
do you need me tonight,
you know you'll see me around
we could ...

down, down, down, down -

    General CommentAccording to my ears and the Gary Jules website, it should be...

    "Baby, I would carve your name in my arm,
    cut my skin to let you under."

    As for the song as a whole, well, what is there to say? It's just incredibly twisted, in a slightly haunting, romantic sounding sort of way. It almost sounds like a stalker singing to a girl who he has locked in his basement. Awesome and disturbing. But mostly awesome.
